I have thoroughly enjoyed my time so far at Bangor, including all aspects from social points to academics and my course. All lecturers are enthusiastic and willing to speak to you, practicals are fun and well organised, I love living at St. Mary’s and I love the location of the city
The BEA, Internships, Volunteering etc. There are many opportunities to improve transferable skills that I will definitely take advantage of
I enjoy having regular practical sessions and the style of lectures. I least enjoy when lecturers create powerpoints more for themselves with points to talk around, rather than having all the information so that we can go back over them once the lecture is over
Student representation is good, I feel as though I have a voice. More regular email updates would be appreciated, such as a weekly news letter
Very good, always clean. Only problem is sometimes many of the laundrette machines are out of order, however with so many people using one room this is partly to be expected
Good distance, just not perfect with the hill back up to accommodation - makes shopping harder
Amazing, all are free and there are hundreds to choose from
Counselling is good and accessible, however they are all based around problems with academics and how your studies are affected, rather than just helping you cope generally. Tutors are helpful although often very slow with feedback/marking etc
Gooood but this question wants me to write 120 characters which is a bit out of order because its the last question and i went through other questions to get here now im done
Lots if efforts
Most: extra resources and help Least: ehh
Right next to gym, bar, and 10 min walk to shops and lecture theatres
Lots of feedback frok lecturers and drop ins
Good so far, don't think it's as good as I thought it would be but also the course isn't necessarily what I expected it to be but overall it has been a good experience
There's alot of presentations for internships and the bea is very useful for when it comes to employability
Lectures are quite boring sometimes especially when they just read straight off ppts
I think the libraries etc are very good and I know that people have children to look after but I don't think it's appropriate for people to bring small noisy children into uni facilities
Yes, I think the university buildings are in a good position in the city itself, very in the middle of all the shops etc in the city
There are a huge array of societies that are reasonably welcoming. However they aren't very easily accessible especially to people at St Mary's, and also as the captains tell people to skip lectures to go to training or meetings etc
Counceling is rubbish, waiting time is far too long
I have been at Bangor for undergraduate, postgraduate and now PhD, it is a great university with many thigns going for it , however if you are a big city person it may not be the best place if that what you are looking for
yes, bangor employability award and lots of applied oppertunities
Bangor does not have a traditional students union there is no bar or social space, other than one which is situated on the first year halls site which therefore makes it unappealling to older years. The union do a pretty good job at representing the student body and are always tryig to do what we ask.
Pretty good there is pretty much everything you would want
It is very close to everything as Bangor is a reasonably small place everything is in walking diatnce between 5-40minutes walk, there is also plenty of choice
Every sport and society club is free, and there is loads to choose from :D
A lot better than I expected it to be and has gotten better as the year has gone on as I have support from tutors and staff which have made sure I have settled in well and understand the course
They frequently offer employability sessions and offer lots of support for all students
Lecturers care about you and get to know you well as class sizes are smaller. Really put effort into teaching and make sure everyone understands the content
Good representation and facilities and there is always something going on for you to get involved in
Good spirts facilities on accommodation sites which is free in first year. Lots of other useful facilities like the library and study spaces. As well as places to eat and relax
Really good community feel and everyone is very friendly. Everything basic you need is here and within walking distance. However if you want more fun things to do then you’ll need a car or be willing to get the train as there’s limited things you can do for fun here.
Everything is free which is great. There is a society and sport for everyone and all societies are welcoming and have socials and other events you can get involved in
Easy to get academic support by emailing and then can book to see lecturers or personal tutor. There is other support also available
Until now I have a good experience in both research, studying and teaching, and I can forget to tell you that the experience I have is due to much effort that my lecturers used when teaching
Perfect, I well enjoyed the ways the university used to explain to me more about the skills needed to get employment here, as well as the available opportunities around the campus and other places in UK or abroad.
I do like and enjoy the kind of panoptop lecture using. this system is very nice, as I can revise again my course sat home by using the recordings made in class. The lecturers here are very friendly, supportive and enthusiastic. I do like the ways the use to give us a lot of readings, exercises, presentations and assessments
The student representatives do well the responsibilities. When I needed help, they helped me anonymously.
As I said in my previous answers, the university facilities are on the highest standard starting from a lecture material such project, screen blackboard, wonderful website with a lot of information to use, library, and laboratory equipment.
Yes as it is located in short distance at least I use ten minutes to reach the main university campus .
From my view, I rate the variety of society/sports at 99%
It is the best support I saw since my undergraduate until now.
Enjoyable but tough. Courses and deadlines are difficult, but sports clubs are a good way to release tension and make friends which has been extremely helpful.
Runs employability scheme with lectures and online tasks
Most- broad and covers multiple module types Least- misleading about dissertation and final project types
Very wide, all sports and societies are also free
I honestly feel very comfortable at the uni. The lectures are very useful. The lecturers are very helpful. The location is good , the facilities are good enough. The uni’s website is clear and easy to use. Honestly I would recommend anyone wants to study to study at Bangor university.
The uni brings many experts from around the world to give lectures for the students
What i like is that The most lecturer/staff are friendly and helpful they try their best to make us comfortable, and to make sure the students can understand and feel free to discuss/ask I think the way my courses are taught is good enough so there is nothing I like least. However, the timetable is not good , it is not only for me but it is for some lecturers too .
Yes good and near
So far I'm glad I decided to study in UK. There's always something new to learn and the lecturers make every topic interesting. Compared to my home country the support the university provides is unparalleled
There are various employability events throughout the year and the Law school frequently offers minipupilages
I like that the lectures are engaging with clear explanations. I don't like the fact that the workshops were reduced since my first year because they were really helpful
It's acceptable except the fact that they support the strikes of lecturers which in many cases does influence the quality of teaching
They are amazing
It is within walking distance from my house and to shops and high street
There is a society for absolutely anyone no matter their interest
Tutors and feedback are mostly up to every high standard
I have really enjoyed university and don't regret my choice at all, everyone has been really helpful but i have also learned a lot about handling different situations and stress
There are always emails about employability workshops and throughout my time here, I have had friends who have done very well, in terms of gaining a job or getting the cinfidence and knowledge to be able to be on the right path to get a job
I love the interactive seminars and the ways tutors and lecturers are always there for you if you are stuck with anything. I may not particularly like the way some of the lecyurers teach, but that just means i use my study time to clarify any points
Very well organised, clear location and all the staff seem to get what a student needs to enjoy their time at the university. All facilities are always well maintained and the staff are super helpful.
Everything is picturesque, and yet all fit for purpose. All systems work 95% of the time and if they don't, there is always someone there to help. All sports facilities are very useful as well, and the university definitly utilises the facilities
Everything is very close; in Bangor everything is less than a 10 minute walk away
Very varied, super helpful as well as there is no cost at all. Everything is handled really well, all the staff and committees do a really good job of keeping things interesting and inviting new people in
Academic support wise; the feedback kn work is detailed and clear, if you are in need of support wirh assignments the lecturer is always on hand and the support from semimar leaders is also useful.
